Thanks for joining us today!

There is much discussion in our society about what Jesus said or didn't say as well as what He meant by what He said or didn't say. So how do we know who is right? We go straight to the source, HIS WORD! Journey with us in 2023 as we explore what Jesus said on a variety of topics and let's dig in together as we seek to understand, apply and live out all that "JESUS SAID".

Anger seems to be on the rise in our culture but even Jesus got angry at times. So is it okay to be angry? If so, when should we be angry and what should we do with our anger? What was Jesus angry about and how does that compare with what we get angry about?

Everyone experiences anger at some point in their lives, but how we handle it can make all the difference. In this series, “Everyone Who Is Angry”, we will explore the different forms of anger and how Jesus addressed them. We'll examine Jesus' own anger, the roots of anger, and the different reasons why people become angry, including pride, fear, and the desire to defend God. We'll also delve into the hidden anger and cynicism that can be lurking beneath the surface of our hearts. Join us as we learn from what Jesus said about, and/or in response to, anger and discover how we can manage our own anger in a healthy and constructive way.

Pride is the root of all kinds of problems and it is definitely a root of anger. JESUS exposes pride in us and offers the solution by modeling it and teaching it: humility. For us to have victory over pride and anger we need to have the "mind of CHRIST" this can only be humbly received from JESUS' gracious SPIRIT.

Discussion Questions -

1 - Please describe the difference between pride and humility.

2 - What are some ways that pride is a root of anger in people?

3 - When have you been like the pharisee in JESUS' parable? When have you been like the tax collector in JESUS' parable? What accounts for the difference?

4 - Why do you think the other disciples were angry with James and John? What was JESUS' solution?

5 - Please read Matthew 7:12. How can what JESUS said here, help you with others you might be angry with?

Please pray for and receive the "joy of the LORD" as your strength and for the humility that comes from the HOLY SPIRIT of GOD.
